The trail took us 7h, and if it is true what strava says (the GPS track seems accurate), it is more than 3.5km up and down. It should be something around 5km. We did it in December. With the heat and the humidity ut was...More

All the reviews you see are right. It's not too bad if you're in good shape, and it might be quite a challenge if you're not. If you're a fit, and have a day back with all the essential items such a sufficient amount of...More

Really good hike up Mt Sorrow. Small car park at the side of road marks the start. Around 9km return, quite steep in parts. Ropes to help up some slippery bits. Can get very wet and muddy. Once you get to the platform lookout, climb...More

Tried this at sunset in the hot, wet of summer. Bailed. Headed out again the other day (nice dry, cool August). No problem. Steep, yes, but was at first overlook (platform) in 80 minutes. Then the second overlook is a mere 5-10 minutes (123 meters...More

This is a HARD 7km return trip where the path is steep, slippery and bordered by any plant you can imagine which has thorns, spikes, serrated leaves, spiky vines, etc. Oh, and don't forget the leeches :) The local maps will advise this track can...More

I did this hike when I was in Daintree in Januari 2018. I was travelling around Queensland solo and after reading the posts on tripadvisor and online I was contemplating if I should do it. But, after I read a post of a woman who...More

My boyfriend and I thought we were ok at hiking, but after this we feel useless!! We found it so difficult and all the spiderwebs and leeches just made it harder! The walk itself is beautiful, but we couldn’t appreciate it as we were trying...More

Trust the other reviews, I have done this walk half a dozen times over the years and it's always tough! If it's wet there are thousands of leeches, if it's dry it's hot! I do recommend this as a dry season walk as during wet...More

Now that I'm back in my sterile urban cube, I really regret complaining about all the spiky things, slippery and rutted track, and steep final ascent. I took some fab pics of the rain-forest canopy whilst in transit and traversed an authentic trail instead of...More

We went out on the track in July, after a heavy day of rain. We expected slippery rocks and tracks but the path was rather ok. Steep initial first K, fairly shallow next one. We only went to the 2K sign. We were with 2...More
